Reference Information

To make an emergency call:


If the phone is not on, switch it on. Check for adequate signal strength.


Press the End key as many times as needed to clear the display and ready the phone
for calls.


Key in the official emergency number for your present location. Emergency numbers
vary by location.


Press the Talk key.

If certain features are in use, you may first need to turn those features off before you can
make an emergency call. Consult this guide or your service provider. When making an
emergency call, give all the necessary information as accurately as possible. Your wireless
phone may be the only means of communication at the scene of an accident. Do not end
the call until given permission to do so.



Your wireless phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and manufactured not to
exceed the emission limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal
Communications Commission of the U.S. Government. These limits are part of
comprehensive guidelines and establish permitted levels of RF energy for the general
population. The guidelines are based on standards that were developed by independent
scientific organizations through periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific studies. The
standards include a substantial safety margin designed to assure the safety of all persons,
regardless of age and health.

The exposure standard for wireless mobile phones employs a unit of measurement known
as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit set by the FCC is 1.6W/kg.* Tests for
SAR are conducted using standard operating positions accepted by the FCC with the phone
transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands. Although the
SAR is determined at the highest certified power level, the actual SAR level of the phone
while operating can be well below the maximum value. This is because the phone is
designed to operate at multiple power levels so as to use only the power required to reach
the network. In general, the closer you are to a wireless base station antenna, the lower the
power output. Before a phone model is available for sale to the public, it must be tested and
certified to the FCC that it does not exceed the limit established by the government-adopted
requirement for safe exposure. The tests are performed in positions and locations (for
example, at the ear and worn on the body) as required by the FCC for each model. The
following values are the highest SAR values for this model phone as reported to the FCC.

When tested for use at the ear:

FCCID # GMLRH39 is 1.08 W/kg

FCCID # GMLRH41 is 1.20 W/Kg

When worn on the body as described in this user guide:

FCCID # GMLRH39 is 0.96 W/kg

FCCID # GMLRH41 is 1.03 W/kg

(Body-worn measurements differ among phone models, depending upon available
accessories and FCC requirements).

While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various phones and at various
positions, they all meet the government requirement.

The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model phone with all reported SAR
levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC RF exposure guidelines. SAR information on
this model phone is on file with the FCC and can be found under the Display Grant section

after searching on FCC ID GMLRH-39 and FCC ID


For body worn operation, this phone has been tested and meets the FCC RF exposure
guidelines for use with an accessory that contains no metal and that positions the handset
a minimum of 5/8 inch (1.5 cm) from the body. Use of other accessories may not ensure
compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines. If you do not use a body-worn accessory and
are not holding the phone at the ear, position the handset a minimum of 5/8 inch (1.5 cm)
from your body when the phone is switched on.

*In the United States and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile phones used by the public is 1.6
watts/kilogram (W/kg) averaged over one gram of tissue. The standard incorporates a
substantial margin of safety to give additional protection for the public and to account for
any variations in measurements. SAR values may vary depending on national reporting
requirements and the network band. For SAR information in other regions please look under
